User Review: GoLite Shangri-La 3
Design: 3-4 season Pyramid
Ease of Setup: Very easy to set up
Weight: 3.12 to 4.12 lbs
Price Paid: $99
The Golite Shangri-La 3 is an excellent tent for its price. It was called the Hex when I bought mine about 10 years ago. The tent is basically the same with a few changes and the price has gone up. But it's not an expensive tent and comes in three separate sections/parts.
It has a rainfly that weighs about 2 lbs 7 oz and is usable by itself. With only one pole that can be ordered separate or replaced with a walking pole. The second part is a No-See-Em bug netting sewn to a bathtub style floor and weighs about 2 lbs 5 oz. It can be used alone in dry weather or with the rainfly for added stability. There is also just a bathtub floor that weighs in at 1 lb 5 oz and can be used as a ground sheet, or clipped to the rainfly to stay drier against the elements.
The tent also has a loop on the top and can be tied to a tree limb above to make more space inside. It is a two person tent with the pole, and a three person tent with the top tie loop.
Staked out completely it will stand up to strong winds.
I have used this tent for about 10 years and like it as a second tent that is much lighter than my mountaineering tent.
Each tent section comes with a stuffsack with a pocket on the outside for either the pole or stakes to fit in.
